Chase Headley (calf) went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI, and a walk Monday in his first rehab game with High-A Lake Elsinore.

Headley is eligible to come off the disabled list Saturday and all signs point to him being ready by then. The 29-year-old is batting just .186/.250/.314 with two homers and seven RBI through 20 games this season, but he should be picked up in most of the leagues where he was dropped.

Mike Trout (wrist) will undergo an MRI Tuesday.

Trout tweaked his left wrist during Sunday's game. The Angels don't seem worried and are calling him day-to-day, but they wanted to send him for an MRI just to be safe. More should be available on his status later Tuesday.

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, a trade sending Jonathan Papelbon to the Nationals has been "agreed upon."

MLB.com's Todd Zolecki says the Phillies will receive pitching prospect Nick Pivetta in the deal. Papelbon is expected to take over as the Nationals' closer, pushing Drew Storen into a setup role. There should be something more official shortly.

Nationals activated 1B Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day disabled list.

Zimmerman missed over a month and a half with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He went 1-for-15 on his rehab assignment and is batting just .209/.265/.346 in 234 plate appearances this season for the Nationals.

Nationals activated OF Jayson Werth from the 60-day disabled list.

Werth is in the Nationals' starting lineup on Tuesday night for the first time since mid-May. He missed over two months with a pair of small fractures in his left wrist. The veteran outfielder hit well on his lengthy minor league rehab assignment and should be safe for immediate activation in fantasy leagues.

Randal Grichuk (groin) is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

Grichuk is still nursing a groin injury, though an MRI taken Monday showed nothing serious. Peter Bourjos will start in center field against the Reds and Mike Leake.
Jul 28 - 4:34 PM

Yadier Molina (illness) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Reds.

Molina made an early exit from Monday's game because he wasn't feeling well. It obviously wasn't anything major. He is batting fifth versus righty Mike Leake.
Jul 28 - 4:32 PM

Royals designated RHP Joe Blanton for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Johnny Cueto. Blanton had a 3.89 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 40/7 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings (four starts, 11 relief appearances) this season for Kansas City. He is 34 years old but will probably draw interest on waivers.

Henderson Alvarez is undergoing shoulder surgery.

Alvarez was examined this week by Dr. James Andrews, who apparently recommended the shoulder procedure. The 25-year-old right-hander was limited to just four starts this season because of what was originally labeled shoulder inflammation. It's not clear if he'll be ready by next spring. Shoulders are often trickier than elbows.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com hears from a source who believes the Rockies are more likely to trade Carlos Gonzalez over the winter as opposed to this week.

We're not so sure about that, as Gonzalez has been red-hot this month. Given his injury history, this could be the perfect time for the Rockies to get aggressive. The 29-year-old is still owed $37 million from 2016-2017.
Jul 28 - 3:57 PM

Brock Holt (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

Holt sat out Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a hyperextended knee and he apparently needs at least another day. Jemile Weeks will fill in at second base again on Tuesday while Alejandro De Aza will get a shot out of No. 2 spot in the order.
Jul 28 - 3:25 PM

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the Diamondbacks are talking to the Reds about a trade for Aroldis Chapman.

It would be a weird move for the Diamondbacks, who aren't in contention this season. A dominant closer is a luxury in such a situation, but Arizona apparently sees him as a difference-maker as they look toward 2016. Chapman, who will be eligible for free agency after next season, has also reportedly drawn interest from the Nationals.
